Freelance Sign Design: Here's how it works
 

As a 27-year veteran of the sign industry, I've done just about everything, including winning awards in the prestigious ISA International Sign Design Contest three times. Whether I was owning my own sign company, managing one for someone else, or turning a struggling company around, I always considered myself a designer first. Now in my retirement years, I offer unparalleled freelance design skills to sign companies who don't have a full-time designer, need help catching up, need something special or complicated, want to shop your new design, or just want to save money. Let's talk and let me tell you more about why this makes sense for you.  -  Gary         garystamper@yahoo.com
